Sporadic PR Updates?

If I'm correct there hasn't been any PR update in the past six weeks or so. Four weeks ago I relaunched one of my sites. The URL of all pages except the homepage changed and all internal pages got PR0. Today I realized that two of my internal pages had PR. The very first two links on the homepage point to these internal pages and they represent translations of the homepage. I thought PR was assigned only during PR updates. Why did Google assign PR to these two pages only and why did this happen between PR updates?

Minor details:

The homepage has two URLs and both have the same PR:

[domain.com...] and [domain.com...]

The other two pages that have PR are

[domain.com...]
[domain.com...]

and their PR is one less the PR of the homepage. The '?&' is caused by our CMS. I'm afraid to fix it right now because I want to be sure my pages are included in the next PR update.

Relatively new is about 2 weeks old. No, it isn't in the ODP.

Bobby, thanks for that.

If Google's doing TPR updates in dribs and drabs that's substantially different behaviour to what it's ever done before.

sorry george123 but I realy meant Bobby_Davro's SERPs.
Bobby_Davro is it a subdomain of an existing established site and assuming the toolbar is not out of wack are you able to attribute to the speed of the index.

It isn't a subdomain, it is a brand new site. It is only the front page that has been assigned a PR, so it is quite possible that this is actually an IP mix up, or perhaps a DNS issue.

Having said that, there has been a corresponding increase in the number of pages indexed for the site, although that may be coincidence.

I have another site that had a PR3 on the front page for a while, dropped to zero and then back up to PR3 in the past few days. This site has been penalised on Google for some time.

Sporadic PR updates could be effect of a more transparent sandbox. When the term sandbox was coined, sandboxed sites had PR but ranked badly, confusing webmasters and users. What if G decided to make the sandbox more obvious to webmasters?

Agreed.

Anyone with an older site seeing any PR updates to any pages?

yes. My main domain has been PR 6 for quite a while, - and so was the version without the "www".
Now "www.domain.net" is PR 6 while "domain.net" is only PR 2.
I can't really tell when the change happened though - just came back from a 4 week trip to South America, but must have been during the last 6 weeks.

I would say there's been a PR update since the sites on my G Directory page have recently all shifted order even though the toolbar PR is identical.

As of today, PR has been removed from the english and french translations of my homepage (see the first post of this thread). Only the two homepage URLs have PR now.

Has anyone else noticed change of PR in showing in the G directory on web design and SEO websites? Almost every site I have looked at in these cats look as though there has been a drop in PR. I noticed this 3 weeks ago. Does anyone think this will be applied to the toolbar?
